Montblanc 149 or 146

What do you recommend for a FP: a MB 149 or 146?

They are both okay fountain pens and the biggest issue may be how you carry the pen. There is no difference in how either performs. Personally I sold all my modern 149s and 146s and only kept my 1950s 144s and 146s.

I prefer the 146. I have very large hands, but the 149 seems too large. I find the 146’s size to be more elegant in appearance. But some people enjoy the oversized look and feel.
